ambience_arrow01_RE.pngRecent Research Interest

In my research, I use the experimental approach to test theoretical predictions from Microeconomics and Game Theory. In particular, I am interested in how people perceive certain conflict situations and whether their perception is in line with the theoretical description and analysis.

I also use laboratory experiments to gather data on theoretically-hard-to-analyse problem, such as interaction on large decentralized markets in the presence of market frictions and private information.
